Preparedness Notes for Monday — December 21, 2020

On December 21, 1620, William Bradford and the Mayflower Pilgrims landed on what is now known as Plymouth Rock in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

My #1 Son wrote to mention that the newly-released book that we co-authored is selling well, and that it has garnered several quite positive reviews: Survival Retreats & Relocation: A Guide to Finding Your Secure and Sustainable Home is available in softcover, or as an e-book.  If you’ve read it, then we’d appreciate seeing your review, at Thanks!

And today we’re featuring another product review by our redoubtable Field Gear Editor, Pat Cascio.


  1. Washington Post depicts Republicans as rats – just like Nazi propaganda

    Most of the time I can just roll my eyes at negative depictions. I don’t even ‘identify’ as a Republican, except on my voter registration because we have closed primaries here. But today, I am angry. Not about the cartoon specifically but because of all of the good people I know that have been duped (with greater or lesser degrees of their own complicity, but still) by these poisonous messages from the supposed party of unity. People who have the same hopes and fears for their own children, and have somehow been twisted into believing that safety and security come from the path that actually leads to destruction.

    Today I am muttering “squeak squeak mother-” under my breath in my best John McClane voice.

    1. The reason for calling them rats and naming names is that the right intends to target them. The press will help in this effort. Their time tested practices of smearing them, calling them racists and sexists. I fully expect women to come forward and claim they were raped or at least treated badly by these Republicans.

      You may have noticed that many blogging sites have already backed off talking about the stolen election. The word is out, blog about the election and you will lose your internet blog. No youtube or twitter either. Wrong think will not be allowed. If you dare protest you will be called a white supremacist or “proud boy” or part of a militia. It’s early yet but you can see the signs of the coming oppression. Although the blame is 100% on the left/Democrats do not forget it was SCOTUS, DOJ and the FBI that let them get away with it.

  2. Here is a link to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s page about covid guidelines.

    Scroll down to section K. for information specifically about the vaccine. Sure looks to me like employers will be legally allowed to require it. Here is an excerpt:

    “If an employee cannot get vaccinated for COVID-19 because of a disability or sincerely held religious belief, practice, or observance, and there is no reasonable accommodation possible, then it would be lawful for the employer to exclude the employee from the workplace. This does not mean the employer may automatically terminate the worker. Employers will need to determine if any other rights apply under the EEO laws or other federal, state, and local authorities.”


    1. People with children make decisions with the future well-being of their children in mind.
      See: = idahostatesman(dot)com/living/health-fitness/article239068753, ‘California refugees’ move to Idaho for lax vaccine laws. They want lawmakers to know why’ FEBRUARY 09, 2020 UPDATED FEBRUARY 10, 2020
      “They said vaccine mandates take away a parent’s right to make medical decisions for their children, and they voiced concerns about vaccine safety.

      Several people who testified at hearings or via email described themselves as a “refugee” of their former state.

      They urged lawmakers and the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare not to change Idaho’s permissive rules. Neighboring states like California and Washington have tightened the rules for vaccine exemptions in response to outbreaks of diseases like the measles.

      The Idaho Legislature last month voted to keep Idaho’s existing rules, according to Idaho Education News. Legislators narrowly voted to keep the meningitis vaccine on a list of immunizations for high schoolers.”
      Covid-19 has changed the rules for common-sense in America. The Covid-19 death rate is similar to a severe flu outbreak, ~so far. The Covid China-Flue seems to fatally affect OLD People, and (other people with aliments like being morbidly obese, suffering from gun shot wounds or various other diseases).
      ….. … The precautions for prevention and containment of Covid-19 have been draconian. … Hysteria has been created. … China has been largely ignored by the USA Fake News as the source of the Covid-19 … The possibility of the virus being a biological weapon is also ignored.

      The everyday lives of Americans have been disrupted by the Covid-19 panicdemic. Has any of the government mandated precautions been effective in the spread of the disease? …. MAYBE NOT; The Fake News prevents the discussion about the ‘panicdemic failures, by anyone but the people blaming the Orange Man, for everything! … If someone with Covid-19 stubs their toe, it’s all blamed on the Orange-Man.

      Would Idaho be a safer area for families with children? Some people think so. … Some people think children should be home schooled. +Extra preps in the house might be a real good idea too.

      One thing we know for certain! = Many of the same people making the government restrictions are later seen ~publicly ignoring the restrictions they have enacted. ……. Something more than just a disease is occurring in the World and the USA right now.
